CooperVision at the BCLA conference

The contact lens manufacturer will discuss the evolving needs of the contact lens wearer during this year’s BCLA event


As partner sponsor of the British Contact Lens Association’s (BCLA) Clinical Conference and Exhibition which opened in Liverpool’s ACC today (9 June), CooperVision will highlight the evolving needs of contact lens wearers and how new innovations will address this. 

During the three-day event, the contact lens manufacturer will present talks that explore myopia management, as well as the impact that the growing digital lifestyle has on vision. A portfolio of the company’s lenses will be available, including its new MiSight 1-Day myopia product. 

On Saturday, 10 June (noon), CooperVision’s professional services managers, Elizabeth Lumb and Dimple Shah, will take to the stage to present on myopia management. During the talk, they will share the company’s key findings from its new MiSight contact lens, which it reports is proven to “significantly reduce” the progression of myopia in children. 

On the same day (2.20pm), CooperVision’s senior manager of clinical research, Paul Chamberlain, will exclusively present the results of its three-year clinical trial of MiSight.  

On the final day of the conference (11 June), CooperVision’s UK head of marketing and professional services, Mark Draper, will be joined on stage by UK professional services manager, Krupa Patel, for a talk on the company’s latest contact lens innovations, as well as its services and practice support tools that it says can assist practitioners in helping to grow their contact lens business.

CooperVision will also host a series of ‘Ask the expert’ sessions over all three days of the event. Spaces on these session are limited and the company encourages delegates who wish to take part to book via its website
